For Le Parisien, it’s flawless: “At the same time family saga, thriller, romance and the story of a bloody news item that shook Italy,” House of Gucci “, whose 2:37 pass almost too quickly, is one of those films which gives the impression, with each shot, of witnessing something gigantic. ” The JDD is also won over by this “captivating and uplifting tragedy in three acts”. Among the strengths unanimously hailed, let us note the performance of the actors in the casting, Lady Gaga and Jared Leto in the lead. However, many media reproach “lengths” (The JDD) to the feature film and the staging which “lacks rhythm” (Télérama), to the allurs of a “thundering puppet theater”.
Gucci heirs slam film ahead of release
With the agency Associated Press, Patrizia Gucci (a cousin of Maurizio) lamented, on behalf of her family, that the House of Gucci film crews “steal the identity of an entire family to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system” . The latter considers that the book on which the film is based with Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, The House of Gucci: a Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamor and Greed would not accurately transcribe the events. She also laments the appearance of Aldo and Paolo Gucci, respectively played by Al Pacino and Jared Leto, in the movie: “My grandfather was a very handsome man […] His performer is already not very tall, and this photo shows him big, small, with sideburns, really very ugly. It’s shameful, it doesn’t look like him at all. “
Faced with criticism from the family ahead of House of Gucci’s release, Ridley Scott reacted in an interview with the BBC’s “Today” show: “One member of the Gucci family has been murdered, another has gone to prison for tax evasion. So you can’t accuse me of making a profit. As soon as you do these things, you are in the public domain. “
